Hey, how are you? When a few months ago you were able to ask us anything, (read it here) one of our lovely customers enquired us to make a list of things that matter to us. We thought why not to put in alphabetical order (otherwise think the list would have been out of hand) So here it goes! Hope you find it interesting!
A – Arctic Power Berries. Passion. Everything. Life. Arctic Power Berries has taught us so many things, has brought so many people into our lives. Has become our job. One of the best things that has ever happened to us.
B – Berries. We love berries. The love has bloomed into a business through Arctic Power Berries. Think berries are one of the world’s best secrets, packed full of goodness yet taste amazing. They go with everything too. If we’d need to take one food with us to deserted island that would be berries :D
C – Coffee. Don’t think the day would start without a good, strong coffee. Necessity for every morning.
D- Dreams. We are firm believers of following dreams. Even the wildest ones. We think that if you do what you love, you’re half way to happiness.
E – Encouragement. Getting a kick on the butt, is motivating. We also want to encourage people to be brave, to escape the ordinary.
F – Finland. Our home. We’ve lived abroad for quite a long now, but still call Finland home. It’s such a beautiful country with a lot of positives and of course our family, friends, berries and beautiful nature.
G- Google. Has helped so much and is in daily use. Thanks Google for existing.
H – Happiness and humour. Makes everything a worth while. Even the most boring thing can be made fun with a good sense of humour. Happiness isn’t just a state of mind, it can be found in the smallest things around. And shit things in life can be eased with good sense of humour.
I – I. Not being a selfish. It’s good to know your limits, your willingness and think what is for your best. Obviously very important to think about people around you, but considering yourself is necessity too, otherwise things won’t work out well. You gotta love yourself, before you can love others.
"You have to do what is right for you. Nobody else is walking in your shoes."
J – Jokes. Nothing beats a good joke that makes your stomach hurt. We joke a lot.
K - Knowledge. People with knowledge are interesting. Knowledge can come from books, life, travelling, anything. It makes us who we are, makes us learn good from bad. Walks hand in hand with passion too.
L – London. Our home for the past five years. A city full of inspiration, energy, action and amazing people from around the world.
M – Mindset. Set your mind and you're half way there. Think we both are very determined. It's good to have a direction but never make the plan too clear, you want to live a little along the way as well!
N - Norwegian. We travel a lot back and worth UK and London, often with Norwegian (Thanks for having cheap flights and WI-FI on board) We were also mentioned on their on flight magazine last month!
O - Optimism. A mental attitude to stay positive. Everything in life from your health to everyday tasks are better when you stay on the bright side. Sometimes there are days that are full of bad news and stress, it's good to learn to stop and say to yourself "In life nothing ever goes according to plan. And if everything seems like it has then it's not the end." Good vibes only.
P- People. We like to be surrounded by people. We really rarely spend time alone. Even though we could work from home, we often choose to go to the office or a cafe, cause seeing other people is good. You kinda gotta like people if you live in London :)
Q - Quotes. We (Especially Eve) love a good, inspirational quote. They can change the direction of the day and really give you strength and see situations from a new perspective.
R - Risks. In life you gotta sometime take risks, even though it's for a dream that no one else can see but yourself.
“You are allowed to be both a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously”
S – Smoothies. Berry smoothies. Always and pretty much every single day.
T - Time. Flies. Period.
U- Universe. Holds a power for everything. Always have respect for universe and mother nature, don't mess with them.
“We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don’t believe in miracles’”
V - Value. Is important. Things must have a value. People have to have good values and intentions to be interesting.
W – World. We love to see the world. Travelling is the best and very eye-opening. Gives perspective to a lot of things.
X – X- Factor. Saara Aalto, a Finnish singer who did very well on the latest X-Factor UK. It's great to see Finnish people making it 'big' in the world. X chromosome = girl power!
Y - You only got a one life. Live it well. YOLO!
Z - Zoo. We looooove animals. Aren't they beautiful and interesting. They don't belong to the Zoo though, but to freedom.
Ö – We don’t really like this letter.
Ä – Äiti. In Finnish meaning Mom. Very close to us, has set a nice examples to follow and has been very supportive throughout the way.
Thank you so much for reading. It would be nice to get to know you a bit better as well! Please drop a comment below if you like to briefly introduce yourself or say hello,
